Determining line weights is definitely a tricky subject that becomes easier upon repetition. I personally struggle with it especially when the subject is more intricate and complex.

By the way, I hope you don't mind that I did a quick sketch over your piece:
Original:

Tracing Paper with line weight:



I made the line weights heavier at the bottom because I'm imagining there's a light source on the upper right hand side. Line weight also tend to go thinner/lighter when it hits the light, and heavier when it's close to the shadow.

How should you be doing it:
At your own discretion, whatever feels comfortable by you. Your proposal of finishing the base lines first and tracing over it with line weights in mind works. Or you could do a rough sketch and be mindful of the line weights when you're going to do the cleaner pass!

Hope this helps even a bit!
Wow, Sorry for taking so long to notice this man... thank you so much for the advice, really appreciate it :) I definitely need to spend more time refining my drawings.

I've been lazy to update my sketchbook here lately, as I've only been posting to instagram... I'll make sure to update it some of the stuff I've been doing soon.

Once again, kudos to you man!
